The Spanish artist SAM3 is known for his silouette-like murals. Some of these are as high as a house and often refer to their direct urban environment. His pictures are ironic, poetic, but above all provocative. They deal with classic philosophical topics, question habits and refer to current social discourses. Due to the reduction to a few colors and the partly graphic style, his pictures have an unusual presence. Despite, or perhaps because of, their simplicity, they invite the viewer to debate and gradually reveal their message. His works are dominated by figurative elements that are in metamorphosis with their environment.
SAM3 works with symbols such as. Roots and ladders. Figures with oversized heads are typical of his style. The native Spaniard and urban artist currently lives in Madrid, but paints all over the world, not just pictures, but often entire stories. He shows this in his experimental stop motion short films.
Together with LIMOW, he painted a school for METROPOLINK and worked with other artists on the PHV site in 2018.
